|The Bettendorf Library is awesome...I go there every week...it's about 30 minutes from my house, (and near the Y, where I go swimming most days) They have the BEST selection of Audio books...|
|The main County library is in Eldridge -- and, right now -- Lilly has some of her art on display here. A beautiful library (where I took a paper piece class last year) -- and it's only 15 minutes from me.|
|The City of Davenport has a WONDERFUL LIBRARY system...this is the main library, downtown.|
|The newest branch is on Eastern Avenue...this is where I got my first Hamilton CD last year...|
|The Fairmount location is where the Fiber Arts group meets every month.|
Recently, the TMBC wanted to have a Featherweight sewing day...and we needed a VERY BIG ROOM..!!
Nothing impacts my life more, on a daily basis, than the access and availability of all the beautiful libraries in my part of the world. They not only have BOOKS -- and the great audio books I'm addicted to -- but they provide programs for children, safe, educational play areas, rooms with fireplaces where I can stretch out and read the Wall Street Journal, summer concert series, winter book discussions, paper piecing classes, displays of art and/or quilts, workshops...
Well. I'm just saying...I'm a lucky girl and I know it. And -- hey -- when was the last time you visited your local library? RUN....NOW....
